OK now all of you who live in a small town may get what I am about to say :

I am not dying of an inoperable brain tumor-------I started this blog to try to stop the never ending rumors that people in small towns seem to feel the need to start. Maybe I would be more apt to believe them if I was not still working, shopping and going for walks with my daughter. But if any of you still feel the need to feel that sort of sympathy for me please feel free to send large cash donations to my house. Twentys and Fiftys will really let me know how bad you feel. We've been wanting that heater for the pool anyways and I know that some of you will not feel whole unless you have contributed!!!

On a more serious note I do feel pretty good. Once in a while I will get headaches that will last for hours on end but overall I do not feel too bad. I do have some ringing in my bad ear. I am still carrying the extra weight that should magically fall off when the tumor is removed. I no longer have double vision. Some of you have even seen me out driving in town. The hardest part of this is that I do not feel sick!!


  1. Patty, I'm new to this blog thing. I tried to post a comment yesterday, but when I peeked at your site this morning, I didn't see where my comment had posted, so I'm trying again. Your mom emailed me about the tumor and then I spoke to Andy's wife at the drug store and she was explaining all of the pre-op/insurance issues. Having gone through all of the recent tragedies in our family, I officially HATE all insurance companies and the way they hold our lives hostage at times. Glad to hear you are cleared for take-off. Just wanted you to know I'll be praying for a quick recovery for you. If you or the fam needs anything, I'm still here at 404 Lake Road! :) Best Wishes! Deb Wohnsiedler (Durham)

  2. YEAH!!!!!
    Sorry...I was just excited not to have the gossip about me anymore...all about you now baby!

  3. Gossip in this town!!! I can't even fathom the idea. I think that tumor of yours is causing you to make this up. Anyways...I continue to think of you and pray for you. I wish you well.
